Much of Burren’s history is remembered by those old and passed down to those young through nighttime stories to children and the fireside gatherings of inns and taverns. Many of these stories are tall tales, embellished and have little to do with the truth.
Records are slowly being compiled into thick tomes by such travelling historians like Edgar Lusse. Where there is a story, Edgar is there listening and writing as fast as his hand can move. These stories are then scrutinized against older manuals and pages in an attempt to catch a glimpse of what was.
“To learn of the past is to learn of our future.” – Edgar Lusse
